BARC Braintree Against Retail and Business Crime is a sustainable, robust and effective crime prevention initiative, based on a proven approach, supported by the Home Office, ACPO and many business organisations and which has been successfully adopted in many other towns.

Businesses join the scheme to work together to share high quality information and gain the ability to identify persistent offenders. The BARC initiative will enable offenders to be legally excluded from all partnership members' premises.

The partnership will reduce criminal activity, will protect staff from acts of physical violence and verbal abuse, reduce crime losses, and generate an improvement in the environment of the community, creating a safe place to live, shop, work and visit.
